I agree paying someone 100k a week with the undoubted ability james has we will be seeing him and it's upto him to show Benitez what he has to offer cuz if he's out the picture all the time who the fucks gonna want him anyway? I got a good feeling james has unfinished business with us

We had Bernard on 200K a week and the club told him he didnt have any future. Ancelotti was not even allowed to give him chances and he was honest with him about it. Still Bernard was a professional, training well and didnt create any fuzz. But remember what he said when he left to all the "haters" - he was never able to tell the truth. That is how cynical this business is. The narrative became that Bernard was bad and not up to it - but to be fair - the lad never even got the chance to play 4-5 games in a row.
My prediction is that Rodriguez not gonna play a lot, gonna be strange stories about injuries and unfortunately I think James is gonna make a whole lot of more fuzz than what Bernard did.
I do agree that it is crazy to have a world-class player on 100K a week and not use him - but I am sure thats whats gonna happen and that the majority of the fans will hate Rodriguez before we say merry christmas. Cause it is always the club that in the end will win our sympathy. Personally I would have loved him to play in every match but cant see that happening at all. Remember - Benitez was asked about Rodriguez leaving and he said that James knows what I want and hinted that he at least would be an Everton player until deadlineday. When asked about Richarlison he said - Richarlison is NOT gonna leave.
Why on earth should Benitez all of a sudden rate him. He clearly rates Allan, Doucoure, Gomes, Delph, Davies, Townsend, Gray, Richarlison and Gordon higher than Rodriguez...I am convinced he will not get many games if any.
